Antideluvian Miniatures have added to their eclectic Lost World range with these two large miniatures. A vicious looking Laelaps and a more whimsical Nessie are finally here – which dinosaur will you choose?
The Laelaps (or Dryptosaurus ) is inspired by the Charles R Knight painting of 1897. Cast in resin, this is a 90mm long and 70mm tall miniature. It requires some assembly but this shouldn’t take too long. Posed in mid-leap, this is a mass of teeth and claws, ready to rend and tear its victim.
In stark contrast to the murderous Laelaps, Nessie has been inspired by the classic description and blurry photos of the Loch Ness monster. This resin cast, 100mm long and 80mm tall figure is ‘waterlined’, like a ship, and designed to be used on water terrain. The creature looks quite calm and peaceful, but there is a sense it could succumb to a rage if one too many monster hunters keep bothering it.
These excellently sculpted figures and are just part of the dinosaurs and creatures available from the company. Antideluvian has an eclectic set of miniatures, blending many genres and the historical with the fantastical. This is a good thing in many ways: the company is able to produce what they like without worrying about an over-arching rules system or similar.
